Greg for Capital breakfast?

Recommended Posts

Saw a post on DS forums about Greg going to Capital Breakfast, and then just now, Dave Berry has quite and going to Absoloute

Maybe the DS rumour is true

I expect it'll probably be someone like Roman Kemp taking over, Greg's a bit of a long shot cause his style of broadcasting is nothing like Capital's. Can't see why he'd give up the relative freedom he has on Radio 1, the bigger station in terms of listeners and prestige, and his dream job, to go to commercial radio.

Unless all the obscure rumours are coming together and R1 offered breakfast to Phil Clifton meaning Greg got the hump and buggered off to Global to get his hands on a breakfast show.

It does feel a bit like Greg has been acting as if he has nothing to loose atm. There have been a few times when he's said things on air or posted stuff on social media and I've though "the BBC aren't gonna like that". I really hope he's not going anywhere (other than R1 Breakfast ASAP obviously)

What sort of posts/radio comments do you mean?

Just the stuff about Trump, made one or two Brexit references, and that heartfelt insta post re refugees - I've already seen those on the right jumping up and down because the BBC is supposed to be unbiased. Personally I think he's very funny and would be very good at political satire, but I know the bosses wouldn't like it!

Well firstly, he doesn't work for BBC News so the need to be balanced isn't as important and the things he posts on social media are to try and make positive cases to his followers as well as being funny so can't see anything wrong with that. Not like he's slagging off Theresa May or being really political- it's his private account anyway.

Secondly, I would put money on Greg not being the new Capital Breakfast host. I'd say it'll be Will Manning or Roman Kemp- two brilliant presenters Capital already have who would be perfect for the target audience and would fit in with George and Lilah. Greg's style is just SO different to Capital- his games, features, chats with Chris Smith, use of language and expression etc wouldn't go with the Capital style. He has so much freedom on Radio 1, gets to do other things like Children in Need, the Gregathlon and has been allowed to take the BT Sport cricket job (if he took Capital Breakfast, he'd have to quit the cricket job because most of it's in the middle of the night). And of course, he's probably next in line for the Radio 1 Breakfast Show. Really can't see it happening
